Google Classroom for everyone.

Currently you need a G Suite for Education account to use Google Classroom, but soon anyone with a standard Gmail account will be able to join and run classes of their own.

Gene Ressler writes, "Now, teachers and students in many different environments can teach or attend classes, manage assignments and instantly collaborate—all with their personal Google accounts. Starting today, these new Classroom users will be able to join existing classes and over the coming weeks, they’ll have the ability to create their own classes as well."
